|* A lower Price/Rent Index is a strong case for buying that retirement home,|
|a higher index indicates you should consider renting.|
|* Price/Rent Ratio = Percentage of the City Average Home Price (adjusted for the|
|statistical difference between the average and median) to the Median|
|Annual Rent of a similar house (assume a 3-bedroom house)|
